Adoptive father faces child-abuse charges, infant now in CFS care

  • Print

A La Salle man is facing charges after an RCMP investigation into a child abuse case earlier this year.

On Thursday, RCMP arrested and charged a 39-year-old man with aggravated assault and failure to provide the necessities of life after a 10-week-old girl was taken to a Winnipeg hospital with life-threatening injuries back in May.

The injuries suffered were consistent with child abuse, RCMP said.

The girl was in the care of her adoptive parents when the injuries occurred, and the adoptive father is facing charges. The name of the accused will not be released to protect the identity of the child.

RCMP say the condition of the girl has stabilized but the extent of the long-term damage is unclear.

She is now in the care of Child and Family Services.

The accused is scheduled to appear in a Winnipeg court next week.
